The Cycle We Live

The Cycle We Live

They said to the young boy
Just do as you’re told

They said to the young girl
Just do as you’re told

Never question
Just how or why

Go to school
And don’t make a sound

Get a job and
Make your mother proud

Serve your Country
The few the Proud

But when you get out there’s
No one around

Where are your mentors?
They can’t be found

What are we supposed
To do now?

We’ve read all the books
On the shelves

We fought tooth and nail
Right down to the bone

We gave all That we
Had to give

And now the cycle
Begins again

Has no end

So tell the children
